This episode wraps our five-part series on Writing Hit Hooks. We’ve talked about the songwriting equation “Great Idea + Great Hook + Great Lyric + Great Melody = A Great Song,” as well as Memorability, Emotion, Universality, and now Simplicity. Writing lyrics that come across as incredibly “simple” is deceptively difficult and we’ll be sharing some valuable insights this week on how you can incorporate simplicity into your songs to make them accessible, singable, and much more commercial. See you Saturday on The Song Revolution Podcast!
